At today’s EA Play Press Conference, EA CEO Andrew Wilson announced that EA will bring a new subscription service to Origin called Origin Access Premier coming to Origin later this year. According to Andrew, this subscription will bring members ALL of EA’s new PC Games starting with Madden NLF, FIFA 19, Battlefield V, and Anthem.
Many more titles will be added in the years to come, and they also confirmed that The Sims 4 will be part of that perk. The Sims 4 Base Game is already included, but Premier Access will also add The Sims 4 Dine Out and The Sims 4 Kids Room Stuff! Membership will cost $14.99/month or $99/year.
The subscription also includes The Vault, which is in line with what the current Origin Access program offers. Details below.
